For his second film, François Truffaut brings to the screen celebrated French chanteur Charles Aznavour in a mischievous homage to American noir. Having left behind his career as a concert pianist, Charles plays honky-tonk in a dingy Parisian jazz bar and hooks up with waitress Lena until his crook of a brother comes searching sanctuary, after becoming involved in a gang feud. Before
long things get out of control…
